The Future of Dieselpunk is Good

Ok, maybe it's not dieselpunk per se but when I see young people dancing in Savoy Swing shows I really feel a sense of optimism. Check out this video I found on You Tube of a young couple… Continue

Reign of Death

A friend just sent me this link to this cool dieselpunk short movie. According to the site io9

"...it stars Doctor Who's Noel Clarke (Mickey!) and is directed by concept designer Matt Savage, who worked on Doctor Who, Kick-Ass, and the upcoming X-Men: First Class. The styling reminds me of Caprica, with its blend of mid-twentieth century styles and a hypertech future. This short has been making the rounds of UK film festivals, and just went live on… Continue

Voss BV 141

One of the most unusual planes to be developed during World War II must have been the Voss BV 141. What set it apart from other planes was the crew gondola that was placed on the starboard side of the aircraft as well as it's odd tail design.…

1948 Buick Streamliner

I just learned of this car. It's the 1948 Buick Streamliner. According to one site it was designed by Norman E. Timbs, which took him more than 2 years and $10.000 to complete. The body is all aluminum and was designed by Emil Diedt.

The car is powered by a 1948 Buick V8 with a maximum speed of 120

Our Finest Hour - Life Magazine

Not much time left but there's a really great issue of Life Magazine: "Our Finest Hour," It's only on sale for a short time longer (6/10/2010). It's full of great photos and accounts not only from war but a lot from the homefront. I just bought my copy Sunday and I highly recommend it.

Lady Gaga Goes Dieselpunk ... Again!

Yup, she did it again. This time on national television, the Today show. Her opening piece, in my opinion, could be labeled dieselpunk in that it had strong decodence air to it with it's big band style yet she certainly added her own punk spin to it.

Might she actually know about dieselpunk and be into it?

Note: I've edited my comments…

Duchess of Hamilton

I just found this streamliner train on Wiki and thought it was great. According to the article:

Preserved British steam locomotive of the former London, Midland and Scottish (LMS) Railway, Princess Coronation Class No. 6229 Duchess of Hamilton, 6 June 2009. The locomotive was built as a streamliner in 1938 in a blue and silver livery, and was exported to the United States (painted as Class sister No. 6220) for a 3,000 mile tour and visit to the 1939… Continue
